Robin Lear from Calvary Assembly of God in Dover, Delaware brings us this great pallet screen with typography on top.
This stage design was created for a Night of Worship, but will continue to be used until the Christmas Holidays. This design was inspired by all the pallet designs Robin has seen for the past couple of years. The actual sign was 8’x16′ on two 8×8 frames attached together. All the wood was reclaimed from pallets, except the 2×4’s for the frame. Robin created the actual verbiage in Photoshop and had a sign shop create the words for them. It was made out of foam board. They installed it using stand offs because of the depth it brought to the actual sign. Because of the sheer size of this sign, they had to purchase two 2-ton winches to support the weight. They were attached to an I beam. The edison light fixtures were created by drilling holes in a 2×8 sheet of plywood and adjusting the lights to create a rainfall effect. There were about 28 lights in each fixture. All the wires were daisy chained together to make it 1 fixture which could be controlled from the sound booth. Once they got the lengths right, they flipped the board and used it as a template to drill holes into the other piece of wood that created a mirror image. Approximate cost of this project was around $1200, which included 2 electric winches, the 2x4s, 1 sheet of plywood, the braided electric wire, sockets and bulbs. The pallets were free.
